Designing Your New Stone Fireplace With Ledge Stone

Designing Your New Stone Fireplace With Ledge Stone

Selecting the perfect stone for your new fireplace is a very difficult decision for the homeowner for a variety reasons. Every stone style and color tells a different story. The sizes of the manufactured or faux stone veneer is also critical as it relates to the size of the project. A small stone veneer fireplace (less than 40 sq. feet) in cobble stone might be over powering.

Ledge Stone or Dry Stack Stone Style

Our dry stack stone style is sometimes called ledge stone or stacked stone by other stone vendors. This style of faux stone has a very linear look with lots of texture in each stone and looks especially good on walls with heights no taller than 9?. Due to the relief in the stone, adding ceiling lights will create dramatic shadows and enhancing the drama of the stone and the fireplace.

Stone Fireplaces with TVs and Book Cases

Ledge Stone or Dry Stack Stone works very well with your new stone fireplace and adding a TV over the fireplace. A block of wood is placed on the surface to be stoned and the TV bracket is then installed. Your stone veneer is then applied up to the block. The wood block is never seen behind the TV. If you ever remove the TV, the block of wood can be removed and the new stone veneer can be feathered in.
